Features

Chassis

  • BELT TRANSMISSION: The XDiavel is the first Ducati to use belt final drive.
  • FORWARD FOOTPEGS: When the designers and engineers started to work on the XDiavel, they started from a basic concept: a relaxed riding position, like a real cruiser, with a low seat and forward footpegs.
  • ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION: The XDiavel has a 50 mm diameter front fork with black anodized sheaths, which can be completely adjusted in the hydraulic braking in compression and extension and in the spring preload (the S version also has stems with DLC coating).
  • BOSCH BREMBO BRAKING SYSTEM: The XDiavel is equipped, as standard, with the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1ME ABS Cornering. ABS Cornering makes use of the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) platform by Bosch to optimize the braking power of the front and back wheels, also in critical situations and when cornering. The system, implemented within the Riding Mode, can provide performance to suit all conditions and riding styles.

Engine

  • TESTASTRETTA DVT 1262: The undisputed protagonist of the XDiavel is the Testastretta DVT 1262 twin-cylinder engine now compliant with the new European emissions standard. Featuring an updated and newly designed silencer layout and a new engine calibration. As a result, the XDiavel delivers a maximum power output of 160 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 7.23 lb-ft at 5,000 rpm, with an increase of 8 hp and 1.44 lb-ft compared to the Euro 4 version.
  • 5,000 RPM: Approximately 80% of the maximum torque of the XDiavel is almost immediately available: at 2,100 rpm. This means you can pick up speed without having to shift down a gear, by slightly opening the throttle. Just like you expect from a cruiser. The torque peak - 7.23 lb-ft - is reached instead at 5,000 rpm, a pretty low speed for a Ducati twin-cylinder engine. If you want the maximum of what the XDiavel can do, when the Tachometer reaches 9,500 rpm, the wheel gets 160 hp.
  • DUCATI POWER LAUNCH (DPL): The "Dragster" spirit of the XDiavel can be fully expressed thanks to the Ducati Power Launch (DPL). This system can guarantee fast and safe starts thanks to the Bosch IMU which regulates the gas and the intervention of the DTC on the basis of the setting chosen.
  • RIDE-BY-WIRE: The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the engine and the Diavel's fuel grip, which allows the ideal power level to be configured depending on the Riding Mode selected.

Equipment

  • TIRES AND WHEELS: The XDiavel features fourteen-spoke rims: 3.5" x 17" at the front and 8" x 17" at the rear. A 120/70 ZR17 tire is fitted at the front, with a redesigned tread pattern to maximize performance in wet conditions. The rear tire instead is 240/45 ZR17. The tires are the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III.
  • RIDING MODE: The XDiavel integrates the latest innovations in Ducati technology, such as Riding Modes.
  • DUCATI TRACTION CONTROL (DTC): DTC is a very smart system which acts as a "filter" between the rider's right hand and the rear wheel.
  • FULL LED LIGHTING SYSTEM WITH DRL: The XDiavel S features a dominant front headlight with Daytime Running Light (in countries where it is allowed).
